Congratulations to @PacUnion for submitting this week's #housepornthurs winner in Calistoga, Calif.! You have great taste: We last wrote about this gorgeous pad in the Napa Valley when it dropped in price back in January!

It's a natural choice, really: The $35 million, 9,700-square-foot, Tuscan-style estate is set in lush wine country and is described by its owner and former NFL quarterback Joe Montana as "an expression of art and architecture."

Unsurprisingly, it's incredibly sports-friendly with full equestrian facilities (Montana reportedly loves horseback-riding), a basketball court, a swimming pool, a skeet-shooting range and even a bocce ball court. Inside the main house, you can enjoy some excellent Superbowl Sunday-friendly amenities -- a beer tap, pizza oven and multiple flat-screen HDTVs -- so you won't miss a play.

For those who aren't big on sports, that's fine too -- the estate also boasts an olive farm, a spa and a 45-foot-deep pond stocked with local bass.

Avram Goldman and Tim Hayden from Pacific Union International have the listing.
